The Venice Academy of Human Rights is an international and interdisciplinary programme of excellence for human rights education, research and debate. It provides an enriching forum for emerging ideas, practices and policy options in the field of human rights. The Academy hosts distinguished experts to promote critical and useful research and innovation through the exchange of current knowledge. Previous editions of the academy featured lectures by Amartya Sen, Philip Alston, Theodor Meron, Mary Robinson, Bruno Simma, Jeremy Waldron, Olivier De Schutter, Miloon Kothari, Branko Milanović, Kate Pickett and Heisoo Shin among others.
The 2018 Venice Academy of Human Rights will focus on “Migration, Mobility and Diversity: New Horizons for Human Rights”. Professor François Crépeau, former U.N. Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants from 2011 to 2017, current Director of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism at McGill University, Canada and recently appointed 2017-2018 International Francqui Professor at Université catholique de Louvain will act as the Academic and Scientific Coordinator of the Academy.
EIUC is honored to welcome back Professor Crépeau to the Monastery of San Nicolò which he first visited in 2014 as part of the faculty of the Venice School of Human Rights where he taught within the cluster on “People on the Move and their Human Rights: the Internalisation of Migration Law and the Role of the EU”.
